Water Lily also known as water HYACINTH is a beautiful pond plant known to many Filipinos. Despite its ornamental exterior, it is considered a fast growing nuisance in Metro Manila’s Laguna de Bay and Pasig River that clogs waterways and can cause severe flooding.
Today, the water HYACINTH continues to be a beacon of hope for livelihood opportunity and community development transforming its dried stalks into useful products like your pair of Sewn Sandals.
